Vampires are popular in paranormal romance books and movies lately, as shown by the mega success of Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, and True Blood on screen, and by J.R. Ward’s legendary Black Dagger Brotherhood series that continues to captivate readers and has spawned a massive following.
Vampires take a backseat to angels in J.R. Ward’s BDB-spinoff series, the Fallen Angels. So far, the angels haven’t proven to be as popular with readers as their fanged brethren. Let's examine the Fallen Angels:
The Fallen Angels differ from the BDB in the makeup of their heroes. In the BDB, Ward turns what most assume to be soulless monsters into males with humanity whom we root for and lust after. In the Fallen Angels series, Ward pulls a reverse and makes the extraordinary out of the ordinary. The Fallen Angel Jim’s character is a regular guy who happens to land himself in the middle of a battle of good versus evil and the fate of the world rests in his carpenter’s hands.
